I do not use Netflix myself but there is a thread here.

Looks like not sure working solution — smart DNS and VPN may work for some but may not work for others — which means local ISP providers may play a part here.

Edit: correct link, which proves a few VPN recommendations for Netflix VPNs with some disclaimer as following.

“Since losing money goes against the core principle of any business, Netfli id=x found itself under a considerable amount of pressure to prevent people from using a VPN, without just seeming to do so. In reply, the service set up what’s possibly the best VPN detection system outside of the People’s Republic of China to catch perpetrators.”

“Which brings us to a last point: in this cat-and-mouse game between Netflix and VPNs there are no guarantees. One day a server will work perfectly, the next you’re out of luck and you get a Netflix proxy error. All that helps is switching servers and praying that your old one will be back up sooner rather than later.”

I believe the only more likely to work longer solution is to have your own VPN — VPS on AWS or Google Cloud or other service providers.

I watched quite a bit of Chinese YouTubers who built VPS to bypass the Great Wall firewall in China. If the solution works for Great Wall, then I think it should work for Netflix.

The issue is whether it is worth the money or efforts to chase for the elusive 4k.
